#2286 xetex warning : ** WARNING ** Couldn't open font map file "kanjix.map"

Packaging (305)

dvipdfmx.cfg in dvipdfm\config contains a reference to the map file kanjix.map:

 % the following file is generated by updmap(-sys) from the 
 % KanjiMap entries in the updmap.cfg file.
 f kanjix.map

The updmap of texlive creates this map automatically in fonts/map/dvipdfmx/updmap. (The default kanjix.map is empty, but there is an option in updmap.cfg to change this).

The updmap / initexmf --mkmaps command of miktex doesn't create the map file automatically and so it is missing and every xetex run issues a (rather harmless) warning which nevertheless disturbs people a bit. Please add a dummy kanjix.map somewhere in fonts/map/dvipdfmx or desactivate the reference in the cfg (or change updmap).

    kanjix.map has been removed from updmap.cfg

    kanjix.map is still mentioned in \dvipdfm\config\dvipdfmx.cfg and so the message is still there.

    The problem has gone away after todays update.
